Cattie’s Catch Up: Natalya vs Naomi for the Smackdown Womens Championship at WWE Summerslam 2017 (August, 20th 2017)

With the Days to Summerslam much narrow, the Summerslam theme is all over this weeks midweek catch up. In fact a recent Summerslam Women’s Match will be highlighted, that being Natalya’s Match for the Smackdown Women’s Championship against the then Champion Naomi at last years Pay Per View.

In ring veteran Natalya had earned her opportunity at WWE Battleground to challenge Naomi to a future championship match. Natalya had since accused Naomi, who was in the middle of her second reign that had begun at WrestleMania that same year, that she had tarnished the title that she had customized to her liking. Promising to bring honor to the championship, Natalya went into Summerslam as the confident contender, but wasn’t the only competitor Naomi needed eyes for, as Carmella, the first ever Miss Money in the Bank, had been taunting her over the weeks as well as Natalya. The then heel Natalya then went on to surprisingly win at the event, capturing her first championship in many years, also holding her first championship as a heel (having been a babyface during her Divas Championship reign).
